Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about BREO ELLIPTA. Talk to your doctor to learn more.
BREO ELLIPTA is approved for people 18 years and older with asthma. BREO is a prescription medicine used as 1 inhalation 1 time each day to prevent and control symptoms of asthma for better breathing and to prevent symptoms such as wheezing.
BREO contains vilanterol. LABA (long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist) medicines such as vilanterol when used alone increase the risk of hospitalizations and death from asthma problems. BREO contains an ICS (inhaled corticosteroid) and a LABA. When an ICS and LABA are used together, there is not a significant increased risk in hospitalizations and death from asthma problems.
BREO is not for people with asthma who are well controlled with an asthma control medicine, such as a low-to-medium dose of an ICS medicine. BREO is for adults with asthma who need both an ICS and a LABA medicine. BREO is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and won’t replace a rescue inhaler.
BREO is a once-daily inhaler used to prevent and control symptoms of asthma, such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Maintenance medications like BREO may also help reduce asthma flare-ups.
BREO is a once-daily inhaled asthma combination treatment that helps patients breathe better by improving lung function for a full 24 hours. Your results may vary.
BREO is not used to relieve sudden breathing problems and won’t replace a rescue inhaler.
BREO contains 2 medicines—an inhaled corticosteroid called fluticasone furoate, and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) called vilanterol.
Once-daily BREO combines 2 medicines in 1 inhaler to help control asthma symptoms and to prevent them from occurring in the first place. BREO has been shown to increase symptom-free days. Your results may vary.
BREO is not a rescue medicine and should not be used to treat sudden breathing problems.
Once-daily BREO treats 2 of the main causes of asthma symptoms—airway constriction and airway inflammation. BREO opens up the airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. Your results may vary.
BREO does not relieve sudden symptoms of asthma, and you should not take extra doses of BREO to relieve these sudden symptoms. Always have a rescue inhaler with you to treat sudden symptoms. If you do not have a rescue inhaler, call your healthcare provider to have one prescribed for you.
Do not use BREO if you have a severe allergy to milk proteins. Ask your healthcare provider if you are not sure. Do not use BREO if you are allergic to fluticasone furoate, vilanterol, or any of the ingredients in BREO.
Active ingredients: fluticasone furoate, vilanterol
Inactive ingredients: lactose monohydrate (contains milk proteins), magnesium stearate
No. BREO should not be used in children and adolescents. It is not known if BREO is safe and effective in children and adolescents younger than 18 years of age.
You may not taste or feel the medicine, even when you are using the inhaler correctly. Do not take another dose from the inhaler even if you do not feel or taste the medicine.
Each inhaler of BREO contains 30 doses, which equals a 30-day supply. That's why your dose counter starts at 30.
BREO contains 2 medicines. Inside the inhaler, these 2 medicines are packaged in separate strips that each contain 30 blisters. When you open the inhaler (and hear the click), the contents of 1 blister from each strip combine to form 1 dose of BREO.
You may see the quantity "60" mentioned in printouts about your prescription, but your inhaler provides 30 doses. The “60” refers to the number of blisters inside the inhaler and not the number of doses.
Use 1 inhalation of BREO 1 time each day. Use BREO at the same time each day. If you miss a dose of BREO, take it as soon as you remember. Do not take more than 1 inhalation per day. Take your next dose at your usual time. Do not take 2 doses at 1 time.
Store BREO at room temperature between 68°F and 77°F (20°C and 25°C). Keep in a dry place away from heat and sunlight. Store BREO in the unopened foil tray and only open when ready for use.
Safely throw away BREO in the trash 6 weeks after you open the foil tray or when the counter reads “0,” whichever comes first. Write the date you open the tray on the label on the inhaler.
Keep BREO and all medicines out of the reach of children.
